WEST, Texas — When the first
call came in, it was just a fire. Smoke was coming from West Fertilizer
Co. and an alarm was sounding, so a woman at a park just across the
railroad tracks called 911. She was calm and matter of fact. The
dispatcher responded in kind: "OK, I'm going to get them to put out the
fire."It was 7:29 p.m. April 17, and the last routine moment in West, Texas, since.Within
20 minutes, the park was strewn with two-foot chunks of concrete from
the exploded fertilizer plant. The apartment complex behind it was
ripped apart by the wave of energy that climbed the railroad bed and
slammed into the building, shredding its roof and blowing out windows.Read more here: http://www.idahostatesman.com/2013/04/22/2547295/911-calls-capture-terror-of-texas.html#storylink=cpy
